Forum: movies Subject: ATTENTION CANADIANS - Is Bell Sympatico throttling you at this site?

It would seem that Bell Sympatico has seen fit to limit your access to this site

With internet throttling, Bell now limits your access to anything it THINKS is a copyright violation. For example, try to download anything that ends in mpeg or MP4 and see what happens to your internet connection. Use Speakeasy's speedtest online for example - you'll be slowed from 4000+ kbps to about 200

If you form a VPN connection to something, then do the same, suddenly you get the same speed you always USED to have, limited only by your subscription speed and Archive's servers.

If this is happening to you - try the VPN workaround, complain to Bell, and consider switching to TekSavvy - they are netneutral.
